Healthcare Challenges
With only a few months until major reforms in the Affordable Care Act
scheduled to go into effect on January 1, 2014, the U.S. healthcare industry
is racing to put in place the building blocks for handling new payment/care
models and a growing number of newly insured patients. As the biggest overhaul
of U.S. healthcare since the enactment of Medicare and Medicaid gets closer,
it's clear that severe talent shortages could jeopardize the future of the
healthcare industry. Patient care is being threatened by the lack of qualified
clinical professionals, resulting in increased employee workloads, increased
risk of patient error, increased risk of occupational injury and an increase
in employee turnover.

Additionally, cost pressures are forcing healthcare companies to be leaner,
yet more productive than ever before—resulting in a need for top-quality
talent and the tools that help manage them.
